Description

Discover the folkloric countryside of Alboraya, a rural region filled with tigernut plantations, and learn about the refreshing Valencian drink made from this tiny tuber—horchata. See the fields where tigernuts are grown, learn about the machinery used in producing horchata, and sip a refreshing glass of this milky drink during your tour.

You will be picked up in your hotel to transfer to Alboraya town. There your guide will explain about the irrigation system in l'Horta Nord, a farming region where tigernuts have been cultivated since the Moorish era. Admire centuries-old farmhouses and charming gardens packed with crops as your guide shares facts about the tigernut, a small tuber that only grows north of Valencia and has a protected Denomination of Origin.

Visit the tigernut fields and learn how the tuber is sowed and cultivated. Then, visit a tigernut drying building set among the fields of the horchatería. See machinery that's been used for generations, and then roll up your sleeves to try your hand at making horchata yourself. Finally, sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labour, sipping on this cool, refreshing, nutritious drink with its traditional accompaniment—a glazed Valencian pastry called fartón.
